This work presents the behavior and change in length of shear wall in buildings varied by increasing equal heights from 3.5m to 28m i.e, ground storey (G) to G+7 keeping thickness of shear wall as constant of 250mm and observing the dimension of shear wall in length only. The study was carried by considering both wind and seismic forces for all the zones and soil types as per IS: 1893(part I):2002 and wind loads as per IS: 875(part III):1987. A total of 96 buildings were analyzed for this work using RESIST software. Buildings with symmetrical dimensions (20mx20m), varying wall length and keeping wall thickness as constant (250mm) the effect of shear wall length, wind drift, wind shear, wind moment, seismic drift, seismic shear, and seismic moment, base moment, base shear are studied and results are presented in graphs with height.
